64-87 - Second verse, slightly worse than the first! Rangers lose to Rays 4-0

The Rangers are now a season-worst 23 games below .500

The Rangers lost last night while getting shut out on two hits. The Rangers lost tonight while getting shut out on four hits. Tangible improvement!

The Rangers also gave up one more run than they did in an extremely similar shutout loss from last night. Marginal disappointment!

Player of the Game: LOL

Tank Update: With a 3-1 win against the Brewers, the Reds have moved “ahead” of the Rangers by half a game meaning Texas would currently pick 7th in the 2019 draft in the season ended today. Texas has to finish a full game worse than Cincinnati to “win” the tiebreaker, however.

Up Next: The Rangers close out this series with the Rays looking to avoid a sweep with Yohander Mendez currently listed as the starter against an undetermined pitcher for the Rays. Perhaps we’ll get dueling openers. First pitch in the finale from The Ballpark is scheduled for a sultry 1:05 pm CT.
